Wednesday evening we hosted our VIP party in Las Vegas, this year at XS at Encore, a venue designed by Wynn's very own Roger Thomas (pictured here with HD's very own Michael Adams). 


Serious discussions were had throughout the indoor/outdoor space. Here Luke Siegel, CEO, Raydoor, explains the intricate workings of his sliding door systems to me and MGM's ever-allusive Joey, who for some reason keeps everything in a straight-from-Ocean's 11 hard-topped silver briefcase.


David Ashen, d-ash design; Gary Golla, SERA Architects; recent James Beard award winner Denise Korn; and one of this year's Platinum Circle honorees, Brad Friedmutter.

And John Stein, Kirei; Heather Gadonniex, Green It Group; and Hector Narvaez, Marazzi USA, prove that hops are the most sustainable way to go.

  1. To Michelle, Michael, Stacy, and especially you for making the HD09 experience so great. It was wonderful to catch up with old friends at the VIP/XS party and Platinum Circle – and to see everyone in the show. You guys rock!
